million viewer, i would have been du dumbfounded. >> michael, thanks for joining us. we have had a good time arguing and discussing things occasionally agreeing on things but often not. let me ask you about that republican world view. i wonder what color the sky is. how did they see this election the way rasmussen pollsters would see it, basically a romney romp? how did they get it so wrong? >> i think there was a feeding into a mythology that somehow the country would categorically reject the president because we had, that the country would somehow say to itself, you know, we can't live with this new land of big government health care, big government spending, et cetera, because we can't. and that's fine. the problem was in articulating to the american people why we can't live with those things, why those things are bad, and instead, as you have noted many times on this program, we got w waylaid by conversations about women's bodies and abortion and things that didn't go to the nub of what was moving the electorate, and i think right now newt is absolutely right. there's going to requi

, the fiscal cliff is one artificial construct cooked up by the congress and the president to basically get us to think about a much bigger problem, which is what you pointed out. entitlement reform and tax reform and all the big issues and putting america into the accounts. the problem is the president -- i mean, you know, frankly has all the leverage here. so he doesn't need to compromise that much to get half, if not three-quarters of what he wants. >> i think the president is feeling that he has the leverage. one thing we've seen is he's going to take this message to the people. it seems to me he's learned a little bit from the fights he had before, leaving it all in washington giving the republicans a lot of leverage. making it a national fight and bringing in the voters makes it something with more leverage. did he learn? is he going to play this fight out differently? >> if there's anything he learned from the election but not just the national election but where you had the referendum where people were very, very happy by and large to let the rich pay more. i think you're going to see
, the fbi used to get in a lot of trouble when it would investigate the personal lives of high-profile plig figures and others, you will remember dr. martin luther king, not to compare petraeus to martin luther king, but it is to say they got in a lot of trouble when they were looking at people's personal lives when there wasn't a crime or security question involved. it's congress' obligation here if they believe there should have been reporting earlier, it's congress' obligation to write a statute to say that. >> it's no question that the j. edgar hoover-led fbi did a lot of nefarious things in the name of national security. goldie, of course, petraeus was to testify on benghazi later this week. paula broadwell spoke about the region in denver just before all of this broke. let's take a listen. >> i don't know if a lot of you have heard this, but the cia annex had actually -- it headachen a couple libyan militia members prison and they think the attack was an attempt to get the prisoners back. >> it does raise questions of what she knew, doesn't it? >> it may raise questions about what she

this morning, watching on msnbc or listening on xm radio. shoot us an e-mail at way too early. and let us know why you're awake right now. or you can do what fbi director robert mueller does, and text the word awake, followed by your response to 622639. and we're going to read the best responses later in the show. the next 30 minutes will be your cram session for this monday, november 12th. there's a lot going on today, including positive science of bipartisanship. >>> and mitt romney drowns his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle of milk. let's get to the news here at 30 rock in new york city. >>> we begin with general david petraeus and his sudden and unexpected resignation as director of the central intelligence agency on friday, citing an extramarital affair. kristen welker reports. >> reporter: according to a senior federal official and close friend of david petraeus, 37-year-old jill kelly complained to fbi agents about being harassed by ball la broadwell, david petraeus' biographer. a senior official says jill kelly is involved in wounded warrior fund raising in tampa. she is married. pet
determined she was having an affair with petraeus. the fbi then used that information from the investigation to uncover more details and obtain a warrant to surveil broadwell's e-mail, according to the "wall street journal." so, in september, officials say the fbi interviewed broadwell, who then admitted the affair. investigators also convinced her to voluntarily surrender her computer, which was found to contain unauthorized classified information. according to officials, on the week of october 28th, the fbi then interviewed general petraeus, who reportedly admitted the affair at the time, but denied providing any classified information to broadwell. then two members of congress say they received a tip about the same investigation in october which was raised with the fbi. officials say investigators interviewed broadwell again on november 2nd. that's key, because after that second interview, the bureau concluded there were no criminal security breaches and thus no charges to file. it was not until november 6th, election day, however, that the fbi informed james clapper, the director of nati
and income -- as warren buffett reminds us, the effective tax rates for people on top are pretty low. one out of four profitable corporations in this company are not paying a nickel in taxes, losing over $100 billion a year because corporations and the wealthy people are stashing their money in the cayman long islands. the working people of this country say we have to do deficit reduction but don't cut social security, medicare or medicaid. there are ways to move towards a balanced budget which are fair. >> on the other side, talking about the house and particularly house republican, they view the results of this election a little bit differently. a number of them have suggested that in fact the message of this election in electing a house that is still a gop majority is that they don't want taxes raised on the wealthy. >> well, i think the objective facts disagree with that assertion. the democrats gained two seats in the senate, did better than anyone dreamed. the democrats gained more votes in the house, gained a few seats in the house. president obama won a resounding electoral college vi
congress and soon regarding the deadly aattack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. petraeus was one of three witnesses on the agenda for that closed senate hearing, which at this point is still scheduled to happen on capitol hill this thursday. either way, congress could collagen petraeus before them even as they question why they were kept in the dark about a month-long fbi inquiry that ended his tenure at the country's top spy agency. >> this thing just came so fast and so hard, and since then it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off, and you see a whole new dimension to this. my concern has actually escalated over the last few days. >> and questions also remain about why the president and the white house were not notified about the scandal surrounding petraeus until late last week. republican congressman eric cantor says he was notified back in october after being contacted by an fbi employee concerned that sensitive information may have been compromised. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating the director of the cia or the cia director came one their focus
you tell us? >> well, first of all, there was a stage where they found some classified information on paula broadwell's computer. and until they shut down any possibility that it had come from general petraeus, which it did not, they still had an open investigation. they initially, of course, did not know who was sending these supposedly threatening e-mails. and then they traced it to paula broadwell and then when they saw e-mails that they then traced back to general petraeus, they thought someone had hacked into his computer. they did not think it was from general petraeus, so they still had an inquiry, an open line of inquiry into whether or not someone had hacked into the secure e-mails of the cia. >> so they got a court order to look at paula broadwell -- >> from the national security court. >> it was a regular court. it wasn't fisa. >> did they ever get a court order to go into general petraeus' e-mail account? >> he cooperated in that sense. >> going back to paula broadwell, i'm going to play a sound bite from her, october 26 at the university of denver, which is only going
this for us. pete, let's talk about the time line here. this happened right before the benghazi hearings. petraeus is supposed to have testified at those hearings on thursday. critics are questioning, why are we hearing about all of this later rather than sooner? >> what the fbi and the justice department say is that in the middle of this investigation -- and you have to remember, this starts out with an allegation that had nothing to do with david petraeus, it was thought. this was a woman in tampa, a volunteer at the joint command down there, who goes to an fbi agent who's a friend of hers and says, i'm getting these weird e-mails that are threatening and intimidating. it looked to her initially like they were coming from more than one person because they were sent from more than one e-mail account. so the fbi opens an investigation into a potential cyber crime, a potential sort of cyber stalking case. that's how it all got started in late september. now, during that month and a half or so that the fbi is investigating this, it has to discover who the e-mails are coming from. officials
as you've served us. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell, live in washington, where the resignation of david petraeus because of an acknowledged extramarital affair is shaking the intelligence community to its foundations. let's move through the course of events. on november 2nd, the fbi concluded after the final interview given by paula broadwell that there was no basis for criminal charges. officials tell nbc news that national intelligence director james clapper was told about the investigation the following week, on election day. clapper informed the white house the next day. officials say it was not until thursday, november 8th, however, that president obama was first notified and met with petraeus, who then offered to resign. the president accepted that resignation on friday, the same day that leaders of the house and senate committees first learned of the affair. diane finestein joins me now. congressman, why did you and your colleague on the house de not know about this for all of these months? >> because a decision was made somewhere not to brief us, which is atypical. gene
